Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2D has sent a letter to the National Capital Planning Commission complaining about the way it approved modifications to the urban renewal plan to allow construction of the international cultural and trade center after providing the affected community only two days to review the proposed.
The ANC also voted to oppose the scatter plan proposed for planes leaving National Airport and to support the utility regulator assessment clarification act that the commissioners believe would strengthen the autonomy of the D.C. People's Counsel in its consumer-advocacy role.
The ANC met with James Clay, director of the D.C. Department of Housing and Community Development, to discuss the extent to which public housing in the area has improved since the ANC met with him a year ago. An ANC spokesman said Clay assured the commissioners that a number of organizational and administrative changes have been implemented to pick up the pace of improvements, which many residents believe has been too slow.
The ANC will meet at 8 p.m. Monday at Channel Square, 325 P St. SW, to discuss the City Council's upcoming hearing on the changes to the urban renewal plan to permit the international cultural and trade center.
